The 12.64-km stretch runs between Kalkaji and Noida’s Botanical Garden and accounts for a travel time of 19 minutes, thus facilitating easy access for commuters from South Delhi to Noida and vice versa.
On a related note, a driverless metro train on Tuesday rammed into a nearby boundary wall during a trial run, due to alleged negligence by the maintenance officials.
The accident, which occurred at the Kalindi Kunj Metro depot along the Magenta Line, reportedly happened when the train was being moved from the workshop without testing the brake system. As a result, when the train was moved up the ramp for washing, it rolled back and hit the adjacent boundary wall.
